Leading Headmaster condemns EYFS curriculum

From yesterday’s Daily Telegraph – John Tranmer – chairman of the Independent Association of Prep Schools said it was ‘fundamentally wrong’ that Labour ‘was attempting to dictate how children are taught in the fee-paying sector’.

According to the Daily Telegraph ‘in a savage attack he rounded on the Government’s new ‘nappy curriculum’ – a set of compulsory targets for under-fives that must be met by every state and private nursery, pre-school and playgroup…’

Tranmer said to the Telegraph : ‘We have the experience, the knowledge and the understanding to determine an appropriate curriculum for our pupils and it was a sorry day indeed when we lost that professional freedom…for that reason I shall use whatever influence and opportunity I have during this year to campaign to reverse the imposition of the EYFS”.
